During his election campaign, Trump singled out China, declaring that he would impose 45% tariffs on Chinese imports, comparing its development to “rape.”
The U.S.-China trade war is heating up in a battle that may last for years to come. Last week President Trump imposed new tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese exports to the United States. The Chinese government responded with tariffs on $60 billion of U.S. goods. The economic effects of this trade war between the world’s two largest economies (the U.S. at $19 trillion and China at $12 trillion) are slowly emerging.
While many around the world are ignoring this, the recent damage is only the beginning. What will be the fallout for both US and China and the rest of the world? Will this be the beginning of deterioration of US-China relations? Is China’s strategy the war of attrition?
